StratoStar works with junior high, high school and college students.
High School students participate in every aspect of conducting a high-altitude balloon mission. High School students will put their book knowledge to the test in the real world as they develop the experiment. Students work in teams and learn what it takes to coordinate logistics, execute a plan, problem solve, analyze data and create technical reports.
College students utilizing the StratoStar program will plan and execute missions on their own. Students will work in teams just like they would in the industry. They must coordinate between the teams to hit the mission objectives. With the academic knowledge college students have, the experiments are completely open to their creativity within the physical parameters.
Students in our Jr. High programs have the chance to learn and work in teams to complete their experiments, which are launched to the edge of space. For many of the students, this is their first experience with field work and a research project involving the scientific method. The atmosphere and Earth become their own personal laboratory.
Students who participate in StratoStar projects have the opportunity to learn about earth sciences, physics, chemistry, and more. You can also customize your experiment to place emphasis on a certain field of science.
StratoStar projects give students access to professional grade technology and instruments to conduct investigations of the world above our heads at the edge of space.
Engineering is seamlessly integrated into every aspect of our program. Students will learn engineering essentials that may pique an interest in pursuing engineering as a career.
StratoStar’s program is designed to show how math can be used in the real world. By integrating math into a project-based learning scenario, it becomes more exciting to students who may otherwise be disinterested in math.
StratoStar exists to empower educators and unlock student curiosity through project based learning ideas. Working with education institutions, we start High-Altitude Weather Balloon programs to cover all areas of STEM curriculum and allow students to complete a real world project.
